Magpie Dance would like to give huge congratulations to trustee Julia Dias, who ran the Brighton Marathon 2017 yesterday to raise money for Magpie Dance.

Julia completed the 26.2 mile Marathon in 4h 11m 33 secs and was 772nd out of 8110 women! This is an incredible achievement and the Magpie team would like to thank Julia for her great support. Please see her in action with a big smile below!

Julia has raised so far a staggering £10, 589.97. Any donations will be greatly appreciated. If you Gift Aid your donations, we’ll receive an extra 25p for every pound you donate, at no extra cost to you (providing you are a UK taxpayer).

The enormous generosity of our supporters enables us to give every person the opportunity to participate in dance. Donations, no matter how big or small make a huge difference in the lives of Magpie participants and families. Here are just a few examples of the positive effects Magpie brings:

“She really enjoys the classes each week; it helps so much with her confidence & communication.” – Parent

“Just come, dance, and believe in yourself.”  – Magpie Dancer, Jamie

“Nowhere offers this much to so many, with such varied & diverse disabilities.” – Parent

“Not only has my daughter made friends, so have I!” – Parent

Please keep Magpie Dance in mind for any inspiring challenges you may be planning to help us continue our work.  Big thanks to Julia for taking on this challenge for Magpie!
